The Southern Cross University Schools Challenge is back in 2022, offering cash prizes to the schools with the highest number of participants to spend on sporting equipment.
The aim of the Southern Cross University Schools Challenge is to encourage participation across the region from local school children and to get them outdoors doing something fun and healthy in their local community.
How it works
When students enter, they are asked to select their school from a dropdown menu. The schools are broken up into categories based on enrolment numbers and the school with the highest percentage of participants in each category will receive cash to spend on sporting equipment as set out below: –
School Size Amount
Extra Small: $500 (minimum 5 entries to qualify)
Schools with both primary and secondary will be considered separate schools.
The more students who participate from each school, the more chance the school has of winning cash prizes to spend on sporting equipment.
Distances on offer include the half marathon (ages 16+), 10km (12+), 5km (all ages) and 3km (all ages) events all held on the picturesque Coffs Creek Walkway.
Simply enter and select the school you are from.
